Scott Pye has confirmed he has come out of his accident at the Supercheap Auto Bathurst 1000 with one broken rib.
However, the 25-year old DJR Team Penske driver said he "should" be on-track for next week's Castrol Gold Coast 600 to pair up with Marcos Ambrose.
Pye and Ambrose's #17 Ford Falcon FG X was one to watch across the four days at Mount Panorama, but their assault ended suddenly with a heavy crash at the top of the Mountain and 25-year old Pye being taken immediately to Orange Hospital.
It has been a roller coaster since then, with Pye announced as part of an expanded two-car team for 2016 at DJR Team Penske, but also learning of his injury, with just over a week until the next event at the Castrol Gold Coast 600.
"We had fantastic speed all weekend - unfortunately it ended in a big crash and mechanical failure on Sunday," Pye said in a DJR Team Penske video.
"I'm ok, I have got one broken rib, which I've only just found out in the last couple of minutes.
"So I have got a broken rib, but I'm on the mend at the moment. I'll take it easy for the next couple of weeks and should be back on-track for the Gold Coast 600 next weekend."
It is believed the rib injury is not severe enough to keep Pye from driving.
Despite the tough end to a strong run, Pye described Bathurst weekend as "fantastic" for the team.
